Alright, so by now you have heard the tired old time honored axiom “Why buy the cow, when the milk is free”. I have always been convinced that a male came up with this phrase. I just don’t want to believe that any self-respecting woman would compare women and all they offer in marriage to cow and cow’s milk.
The argument here is so problematic, I actually don’t know where to start, but for discussion purposes I want to opine about two points:
1. Shouldn’t men oppose the idea that sex is the only real benefit to marriage? Especially when so many complain that sex is the one thing that greatly changes post-marriage?
2. This expression doesn’t address how cows (women?) benefit from milk (sex?) in a way that makes it all worthwhile.
My dear readers, are you in agreement with the idea that men won’t marry as long as they have heifers (har!) who give it up freely, without commitment?
If every single (and married?) woman suddenly closed for “free business”, would there be a hike in ring purchases and weddings?
Ladies, do we really want to marry a man who is seeking marriage solely for sex? I’m just wondering if this would be a good enough reason to get married and stay married, what are your thoughts?
